In second grade, children begin to ask bigger and deeper questions as they broaden their knowledge of the world. By the end of Grade 2 Science, children will be able to:

  • Develop an understanding of what plants need to grow and how they depend on animals for seed dispersal and pollination.

  • Develop an understanding of observable properties of materials through study and classification of them.

  • Understand that wind and water can change the shape of the land, and compare possible solutions that could slow or prevent such a change.

  • Use information and models to identify and represent shapes and kinds of landforms (plains, hills, mountains) and bodies of water.  


The order of the standards at any grade level is not meant to imply a sequence of topics and should be considered flexible for the organization of any course.



Vertical Learning Progressions


Descriptions of disciplinary core ideas, crosscutting concepts, and science and engineering practices students are learning throughout their K-12 education. 


Sample Unit Progression


This year-long progression provides a sample vision for engaging students in meaningful, connected science learning. Unit samples offer examples of essential questions, phenomena, connections to prior learning, and a 3-dimensional narrative for what learning might look like in the classroom.


Bundled Standards Analysis 

Examples of how to group standards based on common science ideas. Analysis is provided for each grouping of standards and is provided in a manner to support deep understanding of goals and expectations for the teacher and student. Recommendations are not intended to be an exhaustive listing of instructional possibilities.


Engagement Strategies


Suggested instructional practices that engage students with figuring out science ideas.
